  1. I recently bought an USA market 2005 Volvo V50. My first Volvo and love the little guy. At 165,000 the right side axle is is toast and have a new OEM ready to install, However, Upon inspection the boot/s on the Drivers side is torn and I don't know how long it has been that way. My Volvo mechanic buddy says he has rarely ever seen a drivers side go bad. All that said would it be OK to buy a non oem axle? Rock Auto has one for 50$ bucks (SURTRACK/TRAKMOTIVE) that would be almost cheaper and easier than rebuilding the oem that might be ruined anyway. Any advice will be appreciated or a non oem brand that is good. Thanks Bubba
